Is the MY Single Band the future of dating? We seriously hope not

MY Single Band – a bracelet that says you’re basically single and ready to mingle - set to become the ‘newest dating craze’?

First it was online dating, then it was Tinder - now there’s a new dating service on the block.

MY Single Band is a bracelet that basically tells people out there that you’re single – pretty cringeworthy, right?

Coming in seven bright colours, the silicone bracelet is the brainchild of British-Danish couple Rina Mardahl and Rob Young – with the first letters of their surname making up the ‘MY’ part of the bracelet.

And as if it’s not embarrassing enough parading your single status around on your arm, the bracelets are embossed with the words Fate, Destiny and Future.

If that doesn’t make a potential love interest run a mile, we don’t know what will.
